NOTES: Originally an Elizabethan manor house of 1596, with later additions, most notably in 1885-1887, when a wing in matching style was added to the north-east by Sir Ernest George for William Robinson. Author of "The English Flower Garden", he occupied the house until his death in 1935 and made the garden one of the most famous arts and crafts gardens in England. The house is now a hotel. See RIBA161423 for a colour version of this image.
